Researchers are harnessing an imaging technique called cryogenic electron microscopy to design drugs and better understand disease.
Molecules, shmolecules. Why should you care?
We explore the most basic molecular elements of human biology in the lead story for the latests issue of Stanford Medicine magazine.
Graphs, worms and California skies
Scientists combine their love of science and art in an image competition hosted by the Stanford Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute.
The brain meets ‘The Starry Night’
Researchers find the intersection of art and science in an image competition. The winner's image is modeled after 'The Starry Night.'
Imaging technique improves outcomes for many stroke patients
Researchers at Stanford Medicine create new imaging technique to increase the window in which stroke patients can seek care.
Finding the fine details, from pond scum to SARS-CoV-2
Researcher from Stanford Stanford have created an imaging technique to view the fine details of RNA molecules.
Stanford surgeon studies how to improve scoliosis treatment
Stanford researchers have several projects underway to improve imaging techniques, bracing treatment and surgeries for kids and teens with scoliosis.
Cell ‘GPS’ provides real-time look at a single cell’s journey through the body
Stanford scientists have devised a way to use positron emission tomography to watch the movement of a single cell injected into a lab mouse in real time.
“Instagram-like filter” labels molecular details in tumor images
Scientists created an algorithm that analyzes a cancer biopsy and pairs spatial information with gene expression to better understand the disease.
Brain imaging for stroke patients dropped off during COVID-19 height
In U.S. hospitals, the frequency of brain imaging for acute stroke patients dipped, suggesting hesitancy to seek medical care for non-COVID-19 conditions.
“Microbubbles” and ultrasound bombard cancer cells in mice
Using microbubbles and ultrasound, researchers have created a cancer treatment that kills tumor cells and recruits immune cells to the tumor.
Prostate-imaging camera captures molecular detail to detect cancer
A team of Stanford scientists have devised a new imaging technology that harnesses ultrasound and photoacoustics to detect prostate cancer earlier.
Stanford researchers watch proteins assemble a protective shell around bacteria
Stanford researchers watch in real time bacteria building their protective outer shell. Their findings may help develop treatments for bacterial pathogens.
Lower back or leg pain? Waiting before imaging could save millions
If physicians follow the guidelines for patients with leg and lower back pain and wait before getting MRIs, it could save half a billion dollars a year.
Brain scans offer clue to drug relapse risk, study finds
Small trial conducted by Stanford researchers links activity in the brain's reward processing system with drug relapse in patient cohort.
Watching brain cells fire, with a twist of gravitational waves
Researchers led by Daniel Palanker have discovered that an imaging technique known as interferometry could be used to monitor neuron behavior.
